p.3 A schooner laden with flour, and on her way from Kingston to Montreal, was wrecked near Puma's Point, on Monday last. The flour which was greatly damaged, was brought down in scows, and landed at the mouth of the canal. The schooner was likewise brought down the rapids, and is now in the canal basin, sustaining repairs. Her name is "The Wonder." The cargo, we understand, was insured. [Cornwall Observer]

Steamboat Explosion - We understand that the steamer Albion, plying between Bytown and Grenville, burst her boiler on Friday last, and, we regret to say, two men were killed on the boat, and four others dangerously scalded. [Bathurst Courier]

The steamers Canada and Gildersleeve ran foul of each other in Lake St. Francis on the night of the 18th, and the former was so much damaged that it takes eight or nine days to repair her. The night was fine and clear, and the lake wide enough for fifty boats to pass each other, so that there must have been a bad look out kept. The boats were in charge of the pilots at the time. At the late assizes from the Western District an action was brought against the steam boat London for running down the Kent, last year, on Lake Erie, and the owners of the London were cast with damages of £2,500. This is the way to stop these collisions.
